Let’s continue our Week 12 rankings by looking at the best kickers in the league:
- Stephen Gostkowski – New England Patriots – at New York Jets
- Matt Bryant – Atlanta Falcons – at Tampa Bay
- Blair Walsh – Minnesota Vikings – at Chicago
- Shayne Graham – Houston Texans – at Detroit
- Jason Hanson – Detroit Lions – vs. Houston
- Lawrence Tynes – New York Giants – vs. Green Bay
- Sebastian Janikowski – Oakland Raiders – at Cincinnati
- Greg Zuerlein – St. Louis Rams – at Arizona
- Shaun Suisham – Pittsburgh Steelers – at Cleveland
- Justin Tucker – Baltimore Ravens – at San Diego
- Connor Barth – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – vs. Atlanta
- Matt Prater – Denver Broncos – at Kansas City
- Robbie Gould – Chicago Bears – vs. Minnesota
- Rob Bironas – Tennessee Titans – at Jacksonville
- Alex Henery – Philadelphia Eagles – vs. Carolina
- The Giants aren’t going to have the luxury of settling for field goals if they want to keep up with Green Bay. Their inability short (Lawrence Tynes has hit 22 field goals of under 40 yards), is one of the reason’s Tynes’ is among the best kickers in the league this season. While I would expect much better things from the offense coming out of the bye week, Tynes remains a good option in all formats.
- It’s easy to imagine the Minnesota Vikings having to settle for field goals against the Bears, isn’t it? Blair Walsh has been among the best kickers in the league as it is (23-of-24 on field goals this season) and could easily get ample opportunities this week.
- Greg Zuerlein is one of two kickers to hit five field goals of 50+ yards this season (the other is Blair Walsh). While the Rams may not give him quite as many opportunities as other kickers, his ability to hit from long range is always going to keep him as a potential option (much like Sebastian Janikowski).
